Carrie Underwood knows a thing or two about covering a song. It is how she won American Idol in 2005.

When putting together her set list for her 2012 Blown Away Tour, she included a song originally sung by British rock band Coldplay called "Fix You".

"Fix You" was included on Coldplay's 2005 album X&Y. Their lead singer, Chris Martin, was inspired to write it for his then-wife, Gwyneth Paltrow, after her father passed away.

He sings words of encouragement to Paltrow in the lyrics "Lights will guide you home/And ignite your bones/And I will try to fix you."

Underwood performed an unplugged version of this incredible song for VH1 in 2012, and while no version will ever hold a candle to the original, she does an amazing job.

Underwood performs the song with all the right emotions necessary for such a meaningful song. The only thing better than her version would be if she and Coldplay sang the song together.

Listen to her chilling performance below.

Lyrics Below

When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse
And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face and I
Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face and I

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
